Computer/Electrical Engineering or Finance @ Rutgers ----> MBA

Okay so I will be going to Rutgers University (New Brunswick) next fall. I have been accepted to both the School of Engineering and Rutgers College. I am unsure as to whether I should major in Finance or Computer and Electrical Engineering. I would like to later go on and get an MBA. I have heard that an undergrad degree in business is not worth it because you will be taking similar courses in business school when going for the MBA. I really don't want to waste money majoring in Finance or another business related field when I will be taking the same courses again in business school. Plus, I have heard that Rutgers Business School is crap and that the School of Engineering is much better at Rutgers. What do you guys think is better? Will an engineering degree from Rutgers or a business degree from Rutgers be more beneficial? Do Computer and Electrical Engineers have the same oppurtunities as those who major in Finance as undergrads? Do engineers have less opportunities, in terms of jobs, than do finance majors? Will majoring in finance be beneficial for me when I go on to pursue an MBA? Please help I am very confused and open to any feedback. I need to enroll in a school within a week so I really need some help here. PLEASE HELP!!!
